Praise

“At last we are beginning to acknowledge how important nutrition is to brain health.  And in Brain Food we have a superb guide!  As a neuroscientist with a degree in nutrition, Dr. Lisa Mosconi gives us powerful advice on how to eat for maximum brain power as well as maximum pleasure.  Highly recommended!”
—Mark Hyman, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Eat Fat, Get Thin
 
“If we knew what our brains looked like, we’d take better care of them. Often surprising, always accessible, this fascinating book not only reveals the science behind neuro-nutrition, it shows us what we could be eating for maximum brain power.”
—Sara Gottfried, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Younger, The Hormone Reset Diet, and The Hormone Cure
 
“Scientists know that diet plays a huge role in brain health–and now Brain Food distills this research into a practical guide. Mosconi provides accessible advice and lots of options for fueling your brain and aging well. This is an empowering resource for anyone who wants to take their brain health into their own hands (and spoons, and forks).” 
—Kelly McGonigal, PhD, author of The Willpower Instinct and The Upside of Stress
 
“Brain Food is a critically important book. Food is medicine or it is poison. The brain uses 20-30% of the calories you consume. If you want to keep and save your brain you have to get your food right.  Brain Food will help you do just that in a delicious, easy way.”
—Daniel G. Amen, MD, Founder, Amen Clinics and author of Memory Rescue
 
“Can a Mediterranean diet help avert Alzheimer’s? Mosconi’s persuasive account of the surprising connection between food and brain health sparkles with well-researched nutritional evidence. Brain Food offers culinary wisdom and reasons for hope in equal measure.”
—Richard Wrangham, PhD, Ruth B. Moore Professor of Biological Anthropology at Harvard University, author of Catching Fire
 
“Over the years, I have learned so much from the work of Dr. Mosconi, whose accomplished credentials spanning both neuroscience and nutrition are wholly unique. This book represents the first time her studies on the interaction between food and long-term cognitive function reach a general audience. Dr. Mosconi always makes the point that we would eat differently and treat our brains better if only we could see what we are doing to them. From the lab to the kitchen, this is extremely valuable and urgent advice, complete with recommendations that any one of us can take.”
—Richard S. Isaacson, MD, author of The Alzheimer’s Prevention and Treatment Diet and Alzheimer’s Treatment Alzheimer’s Prevention
 
“In an era of confusion about what we should eat, Brain Food is a shining light. This is the straight story about ‘neuro-nutrition’ firmly rooted in research by a neuroscientist who has a deep understanding of how food affects our cognitive health. Dr. Mosconi gives us advice we can easily implement into our lives and a story about the science behind it that is both delightful and accessible. A must read!”
—Elissa Epel, PhD, Professor, UCSF, New York Times bestselling co-author of The Telomere Effect
